I'm gonna love you like nobody loves you...

...Come Rain or Come Shine....
I love that song.
Whoops. blogging. sorry.

This is a card that I made for the My Favorite Guest Designer contest for My Favorite Things. I stamped a few of these images at Jen's the other day...man is this set cute!! It was just released and it's called Rain or Shine.

So the challenge Carolyn gave us was to make an ATC, and then to make a card to incorporate the ATC. It was hard!! Actually, coloring the image was the easiest and most fun part. I made her boots sparkly with a mixture of Diamond Glaze and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Then I painted the puddle with Diamond glaze and added some rain drops with it as well.

For the background paper, I stamped the Boho Blossom image first in Pretty in Pink, and then sponged Pomegranate ink directly onto the stamp. It's an easy trick to create the effect of the Rock N Roll technique without getting ink all over the place. Then I went over the paper with a waterbrush to soften it, and finally I spritzed it with Pearl Glimmer Mist. Some stitching with the sewing machine and I was all done!

I hope you like it...since I've gotten some of these images, be prepared to see more this weekend!
